GrinnypThe Pretender: Part 2So, when you're bored and have nothing to do, do you say to yourself, "I'd like to be a cheap stage magician who must somehow rescue the spirits of folks trapped in an alternate dimension, while solving tricky platform riddles and using powers that I've never had before?" Well, if you do, then check out The Pretender: Part 2. Yes, it's here to fill all your magician/platformer needs!

Created by Tristan Clark and Tim Knauf of Launching Pad Games, The Pretender: Part 2 is the continuation of Part One, a cute and fun platformer originally designed as part of a games competition. The titular hero is performing one night using a neat prop, an old magic book, when disaster strikes! He and the souls of his audience were transported to a strange alternate dimension, where he needed to rescue the poor folks using powers he'd never had before, all the while his lovely assistant attempted to help from the "other side". In the second installment, the hapless prestidigitator must continue to rescue his audience. But his poor assistant is fading, and there is interference from the owner of the grimoire, a real magician who may or may not be evil, but who certainly seems to have an interest in the proceedings as well as your assistant.

Navigation is by the [arrow] keys, and use the [spacebar] to trigger your powers. You can also use the [spacebar] to click through the dialogue in the story scenes. The Pretender: Part 2 has also added new tools like seeds. The seeds can be blown around the scene when you are in air mode, and can be watered in water mode to create climbable vines. There are four different environments to navigate for a total of 32 new scenes. Can you save your audience and your assistant? What exactly does that sorcerer want?

The Pretender: Part 2The basic premise is simple: travel around the area, collect the poor souls, and escort them to a door which will lead them back to their bodies, still stuck in the theater. Blocks in the scenes allow you to alter your very form; an "air" form which allows you to ride the currents of the winds, an "earth" form which allows you to push boulders and break things, and now a "water" form which allows you to swim free in the liquid medium. Simply walk (or fly, or swim) to where a soul is sitting. When you pass them, they will follow you as you lead them to the door. However, only one ghost can follow you at a time, so you need to think ahead in order to save each of your audience from a fate worse than death.

Analysis: The Pretender was quite a delight the first time around, and Launching Pad Games has gone to great pains to keep all of the fun and quirkiness of the original, while ramping up the gameplay with new power-ups and scenarios. The levels start out fairly easy and progress to some real tricky ones by the end, with enough variety to keep the game interesting from beginning to end.

The little characters are delightfully Victorian, and the voice acting only adds to the illusion. The story, music, art, and voice-overs turn what could have been a standard platformer into a charming, quirky bit of fun. Add in the new powers and abilities and you're looking at some seriously satisfying casual gameplay.

The controls are still a little tricky, though, especially in tight spaces or in moving from ladders to platforms, requiring that the player find just the right spot to allow your hapless magician to keep moving. This is the only complaint, though, about The Pretender: Part 2. Amusing, challenging, and quite a bit of fun, this is a puzzle game that will keep you coming back for more. What are you waiting for? Get rescuing!

New Bridge is patently unsolvable.

No way to get to the bottommost spirit while in rock-form, at all, no matter what order you do anything in.

Shame. Was enjoying it up until it became impossible. Maybe they can fix that level?

Great game. I loved the first installment, and the sequel is just as fun. It was challenging, but I managed to figure everything out myself.

New Bridge is possible

The clue is in the neame of the level. You need to make a bridge

I'll try 'The Rising' tomorrow, hopefully (no time tonight).

Hint for The Rising:

You'll need to rescue the top spirit first.

Go left. Switch to air and float up again along the right side. Switch to earth. Push the boulder to the right. Bring the soul to the exit. Get the soul from underwater. Switch to water. Bring the soul to the exit. Switch to air. Take the left breeze to the last soul. Bring her to the exit.

I'm in the 3rd stage. I've finished "Rocky" and "Transport", and I'm pretty sure "The drop" is doable if I want to spend the time, but the rest of the levels are just unpossible.

Oh, I forgot to say what I actually thought about this game. I loved it! The original was great, but the level design truly started to shine in this installment. Ferryman and Half Empty, in particular, were just brilliant. Can't wait for part three!

Bethany, I assume by "unpossible" you just mean "really hard." I assure you that every level here is possible.

Lovely, lovely.

However I was disappointed by the plants. Something viney-er and brighter would've been nice. That bit of art was a rather blah.

Completed it without the walkthrough, and with no annoying solutions. I agree with Buttons that Half Empty is a very good piece of level design - not too tricky but makes you think about all the 'skills' in the game.

Completed it without the walkthrough. Yeah!

I found that there was episode 1 just after reading this. And I finish ep1 and ep2 in a row without walkthrough.

The level design for both episodes are neat. However, there is nothing tricky. I was wondering if some of the stuff (wind, cloud, etc) were not meant to be used (just to confuse player) or even traps. A little bit disappointed as after finish all the levels, I found the game is pretty straight forward, although I also think that the game is also neat, clever and interesting.

I actually liked it more than part 1, although I think it was a bit easier.

I've only had problems with Ferryman, but it turned out I was really close to the solution. I agree that Half Empty is the best level: requires some analysis but isn't annoying.

On the other hand the story was weaker. There were only 2 meaningful scenes: the one about the nature of magic and the ending. Victorian setting and atmosphere are great + for me though :)

@Bethany

Can you be more specific about what was off about it? The final instruction was admittedly vague, but once you have the final ghost in your possession, it's pretty obvious how to get out.

This is my kind of game, no pixel hunting, just straight forward tactical logic. No walk through for me, in fact I thought this one was actually a tad easier than the first one. Ferry man was the hardest level by far, but only for about 10 minutes or so. Can't wait for the third installment.

The voice acting on this game is really fun, it's a nice way to add some humor to the game. Got a chuckle more than once from the gasps and whereamigoing's from the ghosts.

Love these games but this one seems a bit buggy. When I press the spacebar the level re-sets - Robustus particularly so I can't finish the level even though I see what I need to do. Any suggestions?

Great game but sometimes confusing. Also I like the storyline.

Is there any way to get this one to go to Full screen? I remember, part one would do that. It's just easier on my bad eyes, lol.

I'm following the instructions for Ferryman, but I'm having trouble with the

rock placed on the top boat. I can't seem to place it exactly right in a way that will allow me to both sail the boat in wind form and later drop onto the boat from above in rock form so I can push the rock to clear the door and block the air rune to the left of the lady in the top pool. I've tried both smashing and not smashing the ledge.

What am I doing wrong?

Power of the post (what else is new?)

The trick apparently is to smash that ledge right at the point of seeming to be stuck. That allows you to stand on the left edge of the boat and push the rock rightward. Smash it too soon and you just fall right to the bottom.

Excellent. Great gameplay, puzzles that are challenging without being impossible, nice look and mood, engaging story that doesn't get in the way of the game.
